Join me and the award-winning super-poet Michael Robbins as he explains to me the proper way to use Taylor Swift in your writing.
A very exciting panel with three excellent guests — Megan Abbott, Emily Nussbaum, and AO Scott — who'll join me to debate/discuss/dissect the current state of the anti-hero in film, TV, and books.
If you're headed to Bouchercon, come say hello, and please swing by this EXCELLENT SOUNDING panel on Sunday that I will be on...
As part of the series hosted by the New York Review of Science Fiction, I'll be reading with Lev AC Rosen, whose new novel, DEPTH, is a hardboiled noir set in a post-climate-catastrophe (and largely underwater) New York City. It's dueling visions of Dead New York! Additional info about the reading series here — should be fun.
Part of the Edgar Awards Symposium: "Crossing Genres," a panel discussion on how "the lines between genres are becoming increasingly blurred."
I'll be joining a few other Edgar-nominated writers for a reading at DBA in the East Village, as part of the ongoing Mystery Night reading series. More details TBD….
I'll be participating in a panel at the storied Half King bar along with Stephen Marche (author of, most recently, THE HUNGER OF THE WOLF, which you should definitely read) and Emily St. John Mandel (author of, most recently, STATION ELEVEN, which you've probably already read) to talk about "The Future of Pulp" and high-low fiction. Moderated by Joe Keohane. Should be very fun.
UPDATE: Unfortunately due to the incoming storm in NYC, this event has been POSTPONED. We will hopefully be rescheduling for a later date at the same venue, so please STAY TUNED. And if you're in New York, stay cozy.
I'll be launching NEAR ENEMY — at the ever-awesome BOOKCOURT in Brooklyn. Come out and say hello.
